DEAR MR MARTIN SCHULTZ, MdEP, THE CHAIRMAN OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT
Willy- Brandt-Ring 1
+WIESŁAW MERING, BISHOP OF WŁOCŁAWEK
I read your opinion about the ‘coup’ in Poland with much surprise and outrage. I really know my country better than you: I have lived in my Homeland for 70 years; I assure you that the election of the President and the new Government in Poland does not prove the lack of democracy. The election showed that most of ordinary citizens of my Country want a change.
The problem is that those who have had authority before, are lost through this decision; so, they do not want to subdue the election to the verdict and are using also the European Parliament for their interests.
The Parliament, under your leadership, must be busy with very important matters, among the others, the length of candle flame, or amount of water in the toilet flush. Today there are not any politicians in Brussels who would be of high class, that is, people looking for welfare common for societies creating the European Union. Political correctness going together with triviality, is not favourable to wisdom. It is a shame that – Mr Chirac used to say – also ‘You lost an occasion to remain silent’.
I know that you will not change your attitude and will not apologize to Poles. What is needed is greatness to admit to one’s fault.
Therefore, at ‘winter feast’ ( as you call Christmas) I wish you reasonability, wisdom and imagination.
